Yam Concepcion as Jade in “Halik”
Jade is a character who’s loved and hated at the same time by Filipino viewers. She cheats on her husband Lino (Jericho Rosales) and becomes the mistress of a wealthier man named Ace (Sam Milby).
The intense confrontation scenes of Yam Concepcion with “Halik” co-stars Yen Santos (Jacky), Jericho Rosales, and Sam Milby are usual topics among netizens.
Yam Concepcion portrays her character excellently, that a lot of people cannot differentiate anymore between “Jade the mistress” and “Yam the actress”.
The actress does not mind though, and is just happy that people appreciate the hard work that she and the other cast members are doing to make “Halik” one of the most-watched primetime shows on Philippine TV.
